The Nigeria Women Football League (NWFL) has revealed that the maiden NWFL Champions Shield will be held on Sunday, March 4, at the Agege Township Stadium in Lagos.
The NWFL Champions Shield, the first of its kind in the history of women’s football in the country, is the royal celebration of the very best of the Nigeria Women’s Football League where the two best teams from the past season will square up against each other to determine the true champions of women’s football for the season.
The football fiesta is designed as a showcase event for both old, new and potential fans to appreciate the quality of the women’s game.
The NWFL Champions Shield will be the curtain raiser to herald the new NWFL season.
This maiden edition of the Champions Shield competition will feature the champions of the 2016/17 league season/Super 4, the Nasarawa Amazons, and the 2017 Aiteo Cup winners, the Rivers Angels.
NWFL chairperson Aisha Falode said the innovation is part of the board’s drive to give the league a solid footing and the much-needed flavour to attract potential partners for the women’s league.
“This is a top-class NWFL programme by all standards and it promises to live up to its billing. The Champions Shield will be contested by the league champions and the Aiteo Cup winners.”
